The reason why you should be saying yes to everything and why saying yes will make you stand out is for a couple of reasons.
1. You’re going to demonstrate enthusiasm and you’re going to demonstrate interest in the other person’s project. That is bringing value to the other person because you’re being emotionally intelligent by wanting to engage with that.
2. You’re going to demonstrate that willingness to learn, demonstrate that willingness to participate and to be that dependable person that will engage in certain projects.
